(RepublicanPress.org) – Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (R-NY) has continuously pushed President Joe Biden to adopt her radical Leftist agenda at the expense of hard-working Americans’ tax dollars. She recently lashed out at Biden’s proposed infrastructure plan, making a suggestion so outrageous that Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg stepped into the fray to defend Biden.
On Tuesday, March 30, AOC started her attack on Twitter, writing that Biden’s proposal wasn’t “big enough,” adding it needed to be “way bigger.” How big, you ask? The following night, she told MSNBC host Rachel Maddow it “realistically” needed to include “$10 trillion” spent over the next 10 years.
And here is the part where Rep. Ocasio-Cortez mentions the 10 trillion number that caught @Lawrence 's attention.

Buttigieg addressed her suggestion during an appearance on ABC’s “This Week” on Sunday. He acknowledged that some Democrats like her thought Biden’s plan should be “bolder.” However, he defended Biden’s proposal, saying it’s “the biggest investment in American job creation… since World War II.”
Ocasio-Cortez’s ability to strong-arm the Biden administration remains to be seen. We will keep you posted as new information arises regarding the administration’s proposed infrastructure bill.
